What about SNMP monitoring tools?
First, thanks for the article, i'll take some ideas from it :)
I saw that SNMP is not mentioned in any place on the article; Even if is painfull to configure (and sometimes buggy) is a common standard and if you have equipment (like Nokia Firewalls, Cisco Switches, routers and hubs) there is a high chance than they speak SNMP (thus can be monitored).
Some opensource cool tools (SNMP & NMS):
Net-SNMP (open source SNMP agent):
Netsaint (cool NMS and extendable monitoring tool, very flexible):
OpenNMS (java based, scalable, good arquitecture):
